A special Christmas Eve forecast from Dana Fulton
MADISON, Wis. — It’s the night before Christmas,
And here at News 3…
The question is stirring:
What will our Christmas forecast be?
Right now we have fog,
The visibility is quite low.
I bet this means Rudolph
Will be out tonight, all a-glow.
IN FACT, DENSE FOG UNTIL MIDNIGHT
IS LIKELY FOR MOST,
So make sure to drive slowly
And don’t travel too close.
Temperatures are now in the 40’s.
Currently 47 in Monroe!
With cloudy skies overhead,
Steady temperatures are in stow.
So, tonight will be mild,
With fog and drizzle, mainly north.
Our lows land near freezing,
as Santa’s team goes forth.
Tomorrow, Christmas Day,
Plan on clouds at the start.
Then, more sun in the afternoon
As the clouds scatter apart.
Highs will be near 40,
Nearly 10 degrees above the norm.
I know that’s quite mild,
but at least there isn’t a storm!
Once we move beyond Christmas,
And Santa is back at the North Pole,
Let’s take a broader look at the forecast,
At the Midwest, as a whole.
Travel conditions get iffy,
A few disturbances move through,
Those traveling Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday
Please be safe with your crew.
For now, it looks like snow,
Maybe even a measurable amount
Generally to inches,
The further north, the higher the count.
By mid-next week,
The final days of the year,
The weather turns colder
A more seasonable trend appears.
Likely below average for us,
Warmer south and east.
We’ve had quite a mild December,
So it’s time for cooler temps at least.
Back to tomorrow, Christmas Day
Morning clouds, afternoon sun.
With mild temps, get outside-
Play with presents, have some fun!
Sunday, upper 30s
Light snow likely at night
Monday, near 40.
With a little break there in sight.
Tuesday, snow returns
Developing through the day.
After that, colder weather arrives
And it looks like it will stay.
Dry and cold for New Year’s Eve
As we wrap up 2021.
We start off next year quite cold,
And we’ll hold on to the sun.
That’s a look at your forecast,
Thank you for tuning in.
Hopefully it works with your plans
For you and your kin.
I’ll leave you with one thought,
Before I’m dismissed.
Merry Christmas to you.
And we’ll be back after this.
